Hmmmm, just to name a few things....off the top of my head...

ECU, Engine harness, DSI module/ cable, axles (prob diff ZX3 - SVT) airbox (or aftermarket intake), etc.

Should be a cool swap!!

I'm still thinking 2.5 Contour SVT motor with twin turbos...that'd be so badass, I just cant bring myself to pull a great running motor...

Don't forget the complete exhaust system from header on back.

As for the swap...I could go on and on with reasons not to do this swap, but it's been covered so many times and caused so many arguments. So I'll just give you the link to the old thread and you can decide for yourself.

Clicky the Linky

It would be cool if you could do it but the factors mentioned on the other post are true. On top of that it's gonna be expensive especially if the ECU isn't included.
